How to Plan Your Day – Quick Tips

Here are a few simple yet effective tips that you can use to plan your day better:

  • Visualize your long term picture of success and put it in writing, or depict it graphically. 
  • Set timelines, even if tentative. 
  • Try to do your planning at the same time every day. Use this time to review past accomplishments as well as future things to do.
  • Use only one planner to keep track of your appointments. Keeping a separate business and personal planner creates confusion. You can also use your calendar, or a spreadsheet.
  • Write out a To Do list every day, to keep you on track, but do not obsess over it.
  • Know the difference between urgent and important.
  • Check off items as you complete them to give yourself a sense of accomplishment.
  • Block off time in your planner for major activities, including thinking and reflection time. When you have it on your calendar, you will get to it 
  • Don’t jam your day full of activities. Leave time for emergencies
  • Always plan time for balance; include family, fitness, and recreation, social and spiritual activities.
